    The Cauliflower Feta Orzo salad, day 3. Improved with a more liberal sprinkling of feta and some Greek dressing. The damn kale is even more perky than when I started. :x

    The GP,

    If you had your choice, would you skip the kale?

    Skip the kale in the CSA? No. I just need to find a better way to cook it.

    Parsnips, however, I would skip. And green peppers, but our neighbors like them so I can give them away. :-)

    I’ve sliced parsnips up like French fries and grilled them in a pan (baking would work as well) with fry seasoning and my stepsons couldn’t taste the difference. They were delicious!

    It seems many people don't care for parsnips, turnip, rutabaga. I grew up with them, so are near and dear to me. The best ways for non-believers is to put them under a pot roast or roast chicken and let them soak up the juices that will make them tender and tasty. All roots are good in various soups also. Roots make the world go around.

    Over in the My first CSA delivery thread, I had posted about parsnips and you suggested that. They were good when warm, but were still parsnips. :roll:

    As to PuckJam's comment, I love rutabaga! Mashed with a ton of butter, salt and pepper. So good! Maybe I should try parsnips that way...

    I love the Japanese turnips you can get at the farmer's market. I've also grown my own. I get my seed from Johnny's. I also love parsnips, and I like, but don't love rutabaga. I have several recipes that are good for using up bits and pieces of veggies such as that. Vegetarian shepherd's pie, vegetarian curry, and vegetarian chili are good for that. I also make pasta primavera probably once a week. I use Japanese turnips in it a lot. Rutabaga and parsnips would not work as well for primavera. Rutabaga and parsnips take forever to grow, but there is still time to grow some Japanese turnips. Nichols and Henry also have lots of different kinds of root vegetables at the farmers market. Parsnips, turnips and rutabaga keep in you fridge for at least two months.
